One Hundred Episodes. That’s right; Gossip Girl has been on our television screens for over four and half seasons now. Hard to believe right? I know I was shocked. Most series that premiered during the season of that god-awful writers’ strike didn’t really make it and yet this series was able to make itself a pop-culture phenomenon that year that it was able to last, even with declining ratings.
I’ll admit, I haven’t been the biggest fan of the series this season. I have been very vocal about the fact that I did not like how they had completely ruined Blair’s character with that stupid royal wedding storyline to Prince Louis, whose character they also managed to ruin. Louis was a decent character last season but the writers couldn’t decide whether or not to vilify him. It wasn’t until last night’s, Royal Wedding, 100th episode that Louis finally became a full on villain when he told Blair that she would be trapped in this loveless marriage until he deemed it over. And honestly? It served her right. She only had herself to blame for thinking she needed to become a princess, even though the Blair Waldorf we all thought we knew, would have never needed a man to make her happy.
This 100th episode should have never been about Blair’s wedding or the wedding itself. It should have been about our Five main characters teaming up to take down Louis or some other villain. Instead it just made Blair look even more stupid for thinking that if she chose Chuck over Louis (or anyone else for that matter) that God would punish her. Really Blair? Are you really that stupid? Do the writers actually think that this is a good storyline? Or are they just doing this to somehow appease the Chair shippers for a while so that they can go through with getting Blair and Dan together? I don’t understand this show anymore.
Other things happened in this episode like Dan coming to the rescue and helping Blair runaway. Then Nate flirted with the real Charlie Rhodes (whose name is Lola) and Serena stayed useless as she tried to tell Dan that she wanted to get back together with him even though it was clear to everyone that he wasn’t interested anymore. Oh and then there was that hilarious reveal that Georgina is Gossip Girl.
Somehow these writers thought it would be a great idea to make Georgina new Gossip Girl. I don’t know if that’s going to work out entirely well but I guess we’ll see. She does make for a pretty great villain.
Soo yeah, I wasn’t all that impressed with this big episode. I just want more from the series that I once loved. I know it’s still in there because sometimes their awesomeness comes seeping out but I haven’t seen it in a while. Hopefully we’ll see are fab five getting together and taking down Louis and Georgina for the rest of the season-because that would be awesome.
What did everyone else think?
